+ - Google Touch-Screen Chromebook in the Works: Rumor->

Submitted by

Nerval's Lobster writes "There are rumors going around that Google plans on launching one or more Chrome OS-powered laptops with touch-screen capability. Google’s Chrome OS is a cloud-dependent operating system for laptops and desktops. It features Google services such as Gmail, as well as access to the Chrome Web Store and its wide variety of apps. While some offline functionality exists (including the ability to edit documents via Google Docs), devices running Chrome OS are largely dependent on a constant Internet connection. DigiTimes reported Nov. 26 that Google had partnered with Taiwan-based Compal Electronics and Wintek to build such a 12.85-inch device. The newspaper cited the Chinese-language Commercial Times (CT) as its source. (Hat tip to InformationWeek for spotting the info.) “Compal will start shipments as soon as the end of 2012,” DigiTimes wrote, paraphrasing the other newspaper. However, any reader should take that with a massive grain of salt, as DigiTimes has reported on many a rumor that later failed to manifest as an actual product or service."
